  • Bloggers vs. Journalists, it’s Over says Jay Rosen

    NYU’s Jay Rosen declares the “war” between New and Old Media over in a long keynote at the recent Blogging, Journalism & Credibility conference at Harvard.

  • Bring Down the Wall says Gilmor

    Dan Gillmor argues for the newspapers to unlock their archives from behind the pay wall and provide them to the reading (and blogging) public as a community resource, collective history, and public record. With advances in contextual advertising such as Google’s Adsense (now available as an API by the way), there must be a way […]

  • James Lileks on Old Media

    The Daily Peg pulls together some choice zingers from Star Tribune columnist and prolific blogger and ephemera archivist, James Lileks, on the impending implosion of the old media. Blogs haven’t toppled old media. The foundations of Old Media were rotten already. The new media came along at the right time. Put it this way: you’ve […]

  • OhmyNews interviews Dan Gillmor

    OhmyNews, one of the very first citizen journalist sites, interviews Dan Gillmor on his thinking behind why he’s leaving the San Jose Mercury News to start his own venture.

  • Dan Gillmor moving on

    Dan Gillmor of the San Jose Mercury News writes in his blog that he is moving on to work full time on a "citizen-journalism project." All bets are that blogs will be the enabler and that many of the ideas outlined in his book will be part of it. We’re seeing more and more "hyper-local" […]

    The end of media as we know it

    The creepy tone of the background music sets the stage for this look back at the demise of traditional media as we know it from the perspective of 2014. Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Friendster and the trend towards personalized and automated filters to help manage information flow pull down the Fourth Estate. “The New York Times […]

  • Tivo Sells Out?

    The LA Times reports that Tivo will now insert advertiser logos onto the screen when you fast forward through commercials. PVRBlog says: Now, I haven’t seen any actual demos of it in action, and this comment from earlier today claims to be from a TiVo employee and says it’ll be tasteful and unobtrusive, but I have a […]

  • State of the blogosphere: Big Media vs. Blogs

    I would be remiss if I did not mention that David Sifry recently published an analysis of the influence of blogs versus the big media sites. Influence on the online world is measured by the number of inbound links which is a core strength of Technorati. Not only is it interesting that 6 of the […]

  • Craigslist vs. Newspaper Classifieds

    More clouds on the horizon for papers that don’t change their ways. Steve Outing writes in Editor & Publisher that the traditional newspaper classified is under attack with free, online alternatives such as Craigslist (which I’m using extensively as I settle into my new home in the Bay Area) and eBay. Of course, the merchandise/other […]
